This morning, the students and staff at Tran Nhan Trong School in Hanoi held a special assembly to present Thien Nhan with the money that they'd raised for him--VND3.5 million (US$219). A very nervous Mai Anh had to make a speech in front of the entire school, while her husband Nghin ran away to hide...
Thien Nhan, meanwhile, missed the excitement because he was back at VietCot getting an extra 1cm added to his prosthetic leg. This is his second leg, and fourth adjustment in two months! While he's been under the weather lately and eating less, he's gained about 1.5kg since being adopted going on 9 weeks ago.
